I’m glad this country is wasting billions of dollars of taxpayer money on a failed occupation on the other side of the world. I’m also glad this is a Christian nation – because I’ve been told that Christians love their neighbor like no other religion’s adherents can. And it’s not as if the richest country in the world has working class people going hungry this holiday season or anything.
So tell me: where are the televangelists and mega-church leaders on this issue? Why aren’t they beating down the doors of Congress, or even mine or yours to address this shameful state of affairs? Where are the “compassionate Conservatives”? Why isn’t this the lead talking point of the day in the media? After all, conservatives own nearly all the large media in this country at this point.
Why are we wasting all that money in Iraq? Does anybody know how many people the $55 Billion would have helped feed and clothe? Articles are saying people’s ability to buy food for themselves is the worst it’s been in more than 30 years. So tell me why exactly people in 2000 thought that re-installing the actors behind Nixon would be successful the second time around?
Oh, that’s right: because brown people, gays, and abortionists are hard at work every day of the year trying to destroy this country. Obviously we have more important things to worry about than our own citizens going hungry. Silly me, I forgot.
